    Description

    Hiking tour around the Adelberg. Magnificent panorama view of Annweiler and the castle trio Trifels, Anebos and Münz, as well as the rock „Asselstein“.

    The tour starts at the Catholic Church in Annweiler am Trifels. We cross the railroad tracks and follow the path on the right to get to the Turnerheim. We pass it and follow the crown signs uphill. The first outlook is the rock “Krappenfelsen”. There you have a great view in the Queich valley.

    After we enjoyed this view, we cross the driveway and follow the path towards the “Holderquelle”, which is a natural spring. There is a lodge, which is great for a picnic. At the following crossroad, a detour to the hiking lodge “Jungpfalzhütte” is recommended. They offer authentic regional cuisine on the weekends, a playground and an amazing view.

    At the cross road we hike stright to the rock „Sommerfelsen“. This is the last gorgeous view on the castle trio. We go back a little and descend back to Annweiler.

    Directions

    The tour starts at the Catholic Church in Annweiler close to the train station. You walk through the “Turnerweg” and by using a little bridge cross the railroad tracks. Right after the bridge the path turns right. At the following crossroad, we follow the Zigzagging path on the right.

    The emperor-Friedrich-path passes the hostel “Turnerheim” and ascends to the rock “Krappenfelsen”, where you have an amazing lookout on the Queich valley. After we enjoyed this view, we cross the driveway and follow the path towards the “Holderquelle”, which is a natural spring. There is a lodge, which is great for a picnic.

    The hiking path turns left at the big crossroad to the rock “Sommerfelsen”. The rock can be reached by an approximately 500 m long path. After that the path winds downhill to the Turnerheim street. You follow the street uphill for a little while until you can turn right into the Scheffel-Weg. This street leads you back to the railroad tracks and the starting point.

     

    Refreshment stops:

    Near the Turnerheim you can make a small detour to the restaurant Schützenhaus. On weekends, we recommend a detour to the hiking lodge “Jungpfalzhütte”. Both refreshment stops are approximately 500 meters removed from the hiking path. Another option is to stop in in the center of Annweiler at the end of your tour. There are many different restaurants, cafes and wine taverns in Annweiler.
